College Life

Family Life

The College provides family accommodation on three campuses—Newtown, Croydon and Parramatta. Each of these campuses has a special community of students and members of faculty with a range of informal and formal social life events and activities.  The family budget is helped by the vegetable ‘market’, operated via a roster of the student families. From time to time a market of clothes and furniture is organised to help families.

There are playgrounds for small children and open space and lawns for older children near the residences. Newtown campus is part of the Newtown shopping district, that always has something interesting happening and there is a large Broadway shopping complex with Coles, Bi-Lo, Target and K-mart within walking distance of the College. Parramatta accommodation is similar, with the centre of Parramatta not far away with a large number of shops, interesting places to see, and quite a number of parks and the river close by.
